Fictious countries clash!

Posted by Kaiphranos on 29 Nov 2022, 02:45

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I put on a game for my dad and my brother using my imaginary 19th-century countries. (The Occiterrans have a striking similarity to French; the Elabruners have a similar resemblance to Austrians of the same era.) I've done these in a glossy toy soldier style, and the terrain is similarly stylized.

This time we were using Neil Thomas's 19th Century rules, and had a go at the Battle of Montebello scenario featured in the book. (The sides are flipped from the historical version due to the forces I had available for each side.) Notably, this scenario includes a railway and troops arriving by train!

Good stuff.

As you undoubtedly know, 'Imaginations' is an old & respected form of wargaming.
I don't do it myself but I do appreciate how it gives you a lot of creative freedom without entirely leaving the safety of actual history.

Charles Grant, of course, has written several excellent (but expensive) books on his Imagination gaming. I own several and value them highly.

I like this style with the wooden toys for the landscape. Even the bases of the figures is in the same style. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing! :thumbup:

Reminds me when I was young, we used a Fleishmann train, lego for the houses and trees and a lot of Airfix soldiers. Hours of fun! :-D
